Under the Bellevue Tree. 40″x48″. Oil on linen. Private collection. Exhibited in the Annual National Exhibition 1998. The tree branches create the image of the folds and creases of the human brain. The main activity of the work takes place underneath this tree-top / brain, an assemblage of tragicomic experiences in the society. Bellevue is Jamaica’s mental institution – one might say Jamaica is a mental institution.
